“You never look good trying to make someone else look bad”
Bullying is a situation of power imbalance where unwanted aggressive behaviors are repeated in day to day interactions. Bullying can be verbal: calling names, taunting or threatening; social: excluding from a group, avoiding, spreading rumors; physical: hitting, pushing, spitting, rude or mean gesturing. It can also be done online, i.e. cyber bullying: by posting/sharing rumors, private pictures and sending inappropriate messages. A child who is being bullied often feels helpless, worthless, lonely and scared. It becomes difficult for him/ her to ask for help. Let us learn to stand for each other so that we feel safe together.


- Remember, before you speak, THINK!

  • T- Is it True?
  • H- Is it Helpful?
  • I – Is it Inspiring?
  • N- Is it Necessary?
  • K- Is it Kind?

- STOP, WALK and TELL


If you find yourself or anyone else in such a situation, take a stand. Do not tolerate such behaviors that make you feel uncomfortable. Walk away from that situation and tell a trusted adult- parents/ teachers/ counselors. Ask for help. Your fear is their power. Take this power back from the bullies.

In a world where you can be anything, choose to be kind.
